Format:Paperback
As I wrote for ‘HTML & CSS: Design and Build Websites’ written by Jon Duckett, I should start this review with same words that ‘JavaScript and JQuery: Interactive Front-End Web Development’ by same author is simply beautiful book to go through. And again, though design by itself should not be a reason to buy any book, Duckett again created book for which all visual learners will be thankful – making the learning process easier to follow, featuring interactive graphics in order for reader to realize how things should look like on the webpages.

While in the previous book the main subjects were HTML5 and CSS3, this time author discusses JavaScript and jQuery teaching methods how to make your pages simpler in terms of coding, while on same time more interactive and interesting for end user. The only constant things in ever changing web design world is change, though JavaScript and jQuery which appeared almost 20 and 10 years ago were able to impose due to their variety and available options from one web generation to another.

As was the case with his previous book, Duckett again doesn’t disappoint in terms of design resources – inside numerous samples of codes and user exercises can be found that enable novice Java web designer to start working instantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simplifies the complex elegantly – superb! 12 July 2014
By Kevin N
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book for me is groundbreaking in the way it helps you really 'get' the theory and practise. So much work and refinement must have gone into this book in the way it delivers tangible examples via well presented sections with clear imagery – in fact I think it is the imagery (a picture is worth a thousand words etc) which really helps deliver the Eureka moments. I've read a lot of technical books and appreciate it takes skill to break down complex workflows to be digestible for first time comprehension, and this is one of the best books I've read – a fantastic achievement in simplifying the complex. Thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars ) The book looks beautiful. High quality paper 23 July 2014
Format:Paperback
(From my own blog brucelawson.co.uk)

Disclosure stuff: I was sent a free copy of this by the publishers. From 2000-2002 I worked with its author. I currently work with Mathias Bynens, the book’s technical reviewer (but didn’t know this until after reading it).

Don’t tell anyone, but I’m not very confident with my JavaScript – I learned to program in COBOL, FORTRAN, BASIC, 6502, Z80 and DCL which are all procedural, so I was looking forwards to a book that starts at the very beginning and treats me kindly, before clubbing me over the head because I polluted the global namespace and laughing at me for extending my prototypical object literal constructors into my callbacks.

The book’s blurb says “We’ll not only show you how to read and write JavaScript, but we’ll also teach you the basics of computer programming in a simple, visual way” and is the follow-up to Duckett’s hugely successful HTML and CSS Book which sold over 150,000 copies. (In tech book terms, that’s practically Harry Potter; in this industry, 5,000 is a successful book.)

The book looks beautiful. High quality paper, colour images, with real care and attention lavished on the layout and the words. I’m no quivering aethete designer, but I found it pleasurable to read even though it’s a weighty 600 page tome. Each page (or spread) is its own discrete infolump so it’s easy to out down and come back to.

It starts light – defining events, objects, methods and properties, showing the relationship between HTML, CSS and JS, and with a section on Progressive Enhancement (hoorah). However, I was slightly peturbed that the first worked example uses document.write.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality book, would recommend 11 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is by far the best book I've bought relating to JavaScript and jQuery. The imagery and layout gives it that smart look and feel and makes it easy to read. It's not like the other books which are pages full of pure writing. I would recommend this book if you're looking to learn JavaScript and Jquery.

P.S. jQuery is amazing :)
